The Blue Neon Rasbora is a peaceful, active and good looking schooling fish. These Rasboras make a great addition to planted aquariums with other small and peaceful species. It is not recommended to keep them with large, fast-moving species, or they will feel threatened, and worse, get eaten as they are so small. These fish do best when kept in groups of six or more. These fish are active and seem to enjoy areas with little flow as well as quieter spots.
The Blue Neon Rasbora needs specific water parameters a right environment and excellent water quality to thrive, so, therefore, are not recommended for the beginner aquarist.
The Blue Neon Rasbora has a glittery looking iridescent dark blue upper body, and a red mid-lower body and the rest of the body is transparent. The males have a black anal fin, and this usually goes a dark black when they are dominant. The fin looks somewhat odd and could be mistaken for fish waste hanging from the fish.
There are several colour varieties of this fish. These include copper-clear, neon-copper, neon-blue and neon-green.
As an omnivore, the Blue Neon Rasbora does well on a diet of flake food, micro pellets as well as freeze dried bloodworms and tubifex.
